Long story short.... Starting in 2002 I had a burning sensation on my upper arms like a sunburn. Went to the dr.... he sent me to a rheumatologist who told me it sounded like PN. He ordered a MRI of my neck and it was fine. I also felt bruised all over my body. This all went away. In 2003, it came back but, WORSE... it happened when I went to see my eye dr. for an eye disease I had. I told him about the burning in 2002 and he suggested I get tested for MS. It freaked me out! I went home and all the burning started OUT OF THE BLUE! I started reading on the net and found Fibro... then I started aching all over. I suffered for 4 or 5 months and ended up w/ major anxiety and depression from worrying so much! I got on Zoloft in Septeber 2003 and within 2 weeks, I was back to normal!!! The dr. said that all the crud I had been experiencing was from anxiety/depression. It made sence cuz the Zoloft got rid of it. Well, I would have break throughs of burning here and there but, no biggy. I got off the Zoloft and 2 months later, it all came back. I have gotten off and on my Zoloft 3 times now. It always come back when I get off of it. My symptoms are mainly burning sensations on my skin (my face is the worst) and a bruised feeling on different parts of my body. One day it's my hip, the next it's a thigh or calf area. I did see an MS specialist on 2 occasions who told me it's NOT MS. I have no clinical signs and my MRIs are perfectly normal. I do have achiness in my feet, legs and arms after setting or sleeping but, once I get moving, I'm okay. No muscle pain to speak of. I sleep well. Does this sound like Fibro?
